1969 Fender Rhodes Student Piano Avocado Green + Sharpe headphones

via this auction

Clearly not a synth, but look at it!

"50 Years old Fender Rhodes Student Piano (aka Fishtail or Jetsons) in the color Avocado Green available for sale! It's made in the first week of September 1969 and has the 1st generation silver twisted tonebars with one twist only and teardrop hammertips. The piano sounds amazing!

The Rhodes has built-in speakers, a metronome and the option to use it with headphones. The Sharpe AV-9 headphones with LM-5 microphone is included in the sale. Notice that it will only work when the piano is connected with the ‘teacher-piano’.

It is also possible to connect the piano to an external amp or mixer. The internal speakers can be disconnected than.

What about the space age design? We are in love with it! What a beauty! It's not in mint condition, but still in very good condition for its age (see photos). There are a few scratches, little wear and tear and at the right side the top is missing a small chip.

The Rhodes is just been serviced with originally parts. There are no reissue parts installed. The service invoice is part of the sale.

It is a 110v version. For European customers we include a converter to 220-240v."
